The ACTA is an open organization established by the FCC and jointly sponsored by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). The mission of the ACTA is to:

  • adopt technical criteria and to act as the clearing‐house, publishing technical criteria for terminal equipment (Part 68 Compliance/scope C) developed by ANSI‐accredited standards development organizations; and
  • establish and maintain a registration database of equipment approved as compliant with the technical criteria.
